    Glentoran 0-1 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: It was a magnificent performance from our players. The first half was even with Glentoran having lots of possession but not creating much. We had two of three chances and got a super goal from Miguel Chines. They put us under pressure but did not open us up. from Kieran Harding Carrick Rangers manager

  6. Match reaction

    Crusaders 0-0 Linfield

    Quote Message: Linfield will be the happier of the teams. We were not as creative as we could have been with the extra man on the pitch. If we had won it would have opened up a five-point gap and we were set up to go for the three points but it just didn't happen for us. from Howard Beverland Crusaders defender and man of the match
